I have seen frozen Fried Mushrooms inside the store. Why you would purchase them I really don’t know. They just take a couple of minutes to put together from fresh mushrooms. It doesn’t make a lot sense unless you might be truly pressed for time. Should you do not like Italian seasoning just substitute traditional breadcrumbs. This is such a excellent side dish it goes very good with practically anything. I used white button mushrooms in this recipe but I am certain portabellas would be just as great if not much better.
10 ounces whole fresh mushrooms
1 cup flour
¾ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup water
2 cups breadcrumbs (preferably panko)
1. In a large bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt. Add water and mix until a smooth batter has formed. Dip mushrooms into the batter and coat evenly. Allow excess batter to drip off.
2. Roll the mushrooms in breadcrumbs until coated thoroughly. Repeat until all mushrooms are coated.
3. Heat deep fryer to 365 degrees. Deep fry mushrooms in batches until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
